PRODUCT CONSTRUCTION
Conductor: 2 AWG through 1000 kcmil annealed bare copper compact Class B strand.
Extruded Strand Shield (ESS): Extruded thermoset semi-conducting stress-control layer over conductor.
Insulation: Ethylene Propylene Rubber (EPR) insulation, colored to contrast with the black conducting shield layers.
Extruded Insulation Shield (EIS): Thermoset semi-conducting polymeric layer free stripping from insulation.
Metallic Shield: 5 mil annealed copper tape with an overlap of 25%.
Jacket: Lead-free, flame-retardant moisture- and sunlight-resistant Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC). Also available: (CPE) jacket.

APPLICATIONS
For use in aerial, conduit, open tray and underground duct installations. For use in wet or dry locations when installed in accordance with the NEC.
Can be used in wet or dry locations when installed in accordance with the NEC. Can be used in direct burial if installed in a system with a ground
conductor that is in close proximity and conforms with NEC 250.4(A)(5). Superior performance in petrochemical plants, pulp and paper mills,
sewage and water treatment plants, environmental protection systems, railroads, mines, utility power generating stations, steel mills, textile plants
and other industrial three-phase applications.

FEATURES
Rated at 105C. Excellent heat, flame and moisture resistance. Outstanding corona resistance. High dielectric strength. Low moisture absorption.
Electrically stable under stress. Low dielectric loss. Chemical-resistant. Meets cold bend test at -35C. loss.
